I prefer House Of Cards. Heck, I even prefer Videotape with the irritating drums. I know only a few people who share my opinion about Reckoner on this board. One of them is Irishteen.

Gotta say, as much as I love Reckoner (seriously, incredible tune, top 3 on the album along with Weird Fishes and All I Need), I reckon this cover just about tops it... if only they included the coda.

Gnarls Barkley - Reckoner (Radiohead cover live HIGH QUALITY) - YouTube

Yeah, it's great. I need to get a very high quality mp3 of that performance. Or the Austin City Limits one.

Actually I don't hate Reckoner or anything. It just bores me a bit. But I will listen to that Gnarls Barkley cover. I will give it a chance.

Is there no room for unpopular music opinions on this board???

I hope you are not implying House of Cards is boring. Because it is not. It is glorious.

I saw it paired with Pyramid Song last year. That was like 10-12 minutes of absolute bliss.

Here's another unpopular opinion (maybe)...

I prefer Kid A's Morning Bell to the one on Amnesiac. That one should've been replaced by Cuttooth or something.

I think that's the popular opinion.

Cuttooth is perfect as a b-side though, wouldn't have made much sense on either album.

Okay I got the mother of all unpopular opinions right here.

I like Sting.

Fits like a glove between Dollars and Cents and Like Spinning Plates, which was the original placement of the song, before it was inexplicably replaced by Hunting Bears.
